A project which focuses on the terraced houses of Michael Street, Kilkenny City, by residents: artist Kay Bannon and researcher Connie Jordan, curated by artist Pauline O'Connell. The street's social history is told through paintings of individual houses alongside the naming of past residents - a list taken from 1930's electoral lists and memories of older residents - to the present day. The paintings will be on display in the front windows of houses along the street from July 24 - 31, 2021. The project is a central element in a large-scale and cross community exhibition titled 'A Portrait of Our Community' curated by artists Pauline O'Connell and Saturio Alonso which will be held with Butler Gallery from October 4 - 22, 2021.
